Maybe in a few years ...  I just learn by doing --- I`m using emacs for
over 20 years and wish I had learned more in the past.  I never got to
it and didn`t bother much because it has always been working great.

Elisp is fun when you get used to it some, and it`s surprisingly
powerful.  I have created a mode from scratch yesterday and set up a
repo for things like that: https://github.com/lee-/emacs
